Corporate social responsibility
We work with suppliers all over the world to develop the best possible products. Being the best means offering high quality and excellent service at good prices. It also means that suppliers must treat their employees according to the same values that we use ourselves. In 2004, we introduced a code of conduct based on International Labour Organisation guidelines. Aspects include forbidding child labour and discrimination on the basis of gender, ethnic background, religious beliefs or sexual preferences. The guidelines also provide for job security, adequate wages that conform with the legal minimum in the country as well as healthy and safe working conditions.
